More re-purpose...used some of my yoga mat for under the tank. Figured it might as well get used someway or another...

Looks like this is going to be a fun scape! Can't wait to see this tank progress. Subscribed.

Thanks! I need to look over your thread as well.

So now there's plants and water! Mostly crypts, I have no idea what they are, there's one anubias nana that's been in a old 10g that's been hiding under my 75g tank in complete darkness for literally a couple months, Fissidens tied to the wood, Hydrocotyle Japan in the foreground, hoping it will carpet for me, and some subwassertang in the corner. Not sure if that's staying, but I wanted it in there for the biofilm and for what small amount of biofiltration it might provide. I shoved a well seeded sponge filter sponge in the AC50, there's also a small piece of foam media that's seeded as well as the biomax stuff that came with the AC30 I originally bought that's seeded. I'll leave that stuff in until I'm satisfied the tank is completely seeded and ready to stand on it's own.

Don't mind the big rock up front, it's just there to weight down the end of the branch. It'll come out once the wood is water logged completely...

Looking great thus far. Will it be instantly cycled by tomorrow or are you giving it a few days?

I'll check parameters but I'm hoping it will be good to go right away. I have enough seeded stuff in there to cover the bioload I think, it's just whether or not anything in the tank is producing ammonia. I never did find out if Eco-Complete leeches anything.

Scape looks great! Good luck with your shrimp today.

Thanks. Water really clear up a lot over night. Still lots of bubbles everywhere but they should be gone before long. Plants looking a little sad but I figure it's just transplant shock. Hopefully they rebound quick. I'm hoping to get the HOB planted or partially planted this evening.

Not sure if the shrimp will make it here today or not. They went from CA to MD since yesterday, I'm hoping they get here to WV today. Already too late to be delivered to my house but if they get to my PO before 5pm I can at least pick them up.

Fingers crossed! I'm counting on mine tomorrow or Friday

Let me tell you what.. My tank looks awesome. Everything cleared up. I think I've got something they'll enjoy.

Looks like it to me. I'm going to try hard to keep my tank as my "flagship" tank. I tend to get a little lazy at times and let things get out of whack, not with this tank.

I like the term. I have a super small flagship tank. I set it up so other than moss growing out, it is pretty much fail proof. My CRS spec. Super tiny, pretty self sustaining.

Nice. I want to do a small tank for my office. Probably not as small as yours...I'm thinking a 3g tank or something. Probably just a neo cull tank. I need to get the 12" cube up and running. I'll probably put all my PFR's in it and shut down the last 20L I have running. Then I might, I might get one more tank, another frameless, and try super tigers again...if I don't try them in one of the other tanks.

Shrimp were about 45 minutes from me at 11:30 this morning according to updated shipping. So...they should be here before 5pm with the PO closes so I'm hoping that I'll have this this evening.
